Established since 1830, Baume & Mercier is celebrating its 185th anniversary in 2015. To honour this celebration, the Swiss luxury watch brand unveils the limited edition Clifton 8-Day Power Reserve model.
Limited to 185 pieces, the Clifton’s sophisticated mechanism embodies 185 years of Swiss watchmaking. With a polished and satin-finished case and domed dial matching the sapphire crystal shape, this Clifton piece stays true to its roots. Its luxury qualities, traditional finishes, and exceptional performance seamlessly fall within the family of complex timepieces cultivated by Baume & Mercier. Similar to the Clifton 1830 launched in 2013 and Clifton Tourbillon 1892 unveiled in 2014, this elegant new edition embraces the heritage that has always been appreciated for its sense of balance.
Baume & Mercier has chosen a mechanical manual-winding manufacture movement, with an eight-day power reserve, for this 45.5 mm 18K red gold piece. This manual movement that has autonomy up to 192 hours enables the watch to run for over a week.
The beautiful décor features a circular-grained finish on the plate and "Côtes de Genève" on the bridges. One of the bridges is engraved with the Greek letter, "Phi", which is the logo of Baume & Mercier as well as the symbol of "Divine Proportion" and the golden ratio.
